Underoath was the band whose lyrics made me take up writing in my college days. Their lyrics are just so scintillating and hard-hitting, even if sometimes they do not make any sense to the rational mind. But something resonated deep inside.

Well, it's true for 99% of us, lesser mortals.
I don't have a way out but listening to songs such as this makes me think about it.

I am lightning and you are the ground
